Mr. Food 

Hi Nancy,
I am looking for TNT recipes for tomatillos. My plant is ready to burst with fruit!

Evening All, I hope it is not too late in the season to submit a recipe for watermelon jelly I came across in my files this evening.

Watermelon Jelly
Makes 4 half-pts.

4 cups, seeded, diced watermelon
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tbsps. lemon juice
3 ozs. liquid pectin

Place diced watermelon in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth (should have 2 cups of puree). Can use puree as is or strain to obtain juice. Combine juice, sugar and lemon juice in a large pot over high heat. Stir constantly until mixture boils, then add liquid pectin.

Bring to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down. Continue stirring, boiling hard for 1 minute. Remove from heat, skim off foam and ladle into clean 1/2 pint jars, leaving 1/2-inch head space. Wipe jar rims and adjust lids.

Seal by placing jars in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes.
Yield: 4 half

And here is a delicious peach crisp recipe.

The key to this easy crisp is the grated lemon rind, which serves as a foil for the sweetness of the fruit. You can easily peel the peaches by dunking them in very hot water, then remove the skin with a paring knife.

Peach Crisp

1 cup flour
1 cup light brown sugar
Grated rind of one lemon
1/2 cup cold butter
4 cups fresh sliced peaches, peeled
The juice of one lemon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the flour, sugar, lemon rind and butter together well until it resembles coarse meal. Put the peaches in a greased, shallow baking dish and sprinkle with lemon juice. Press the crumb mixture on top. Bake for 25 minutes or until nicely golden.

Try it warm over or under ice cream, or sprinkled with crushed, roasted almonds.

Mary Lou was asking for recipes using Frosted Flakes cereal, and this is one my children and grandchildren grew up on, and have always enjoyed.

Tiger Cookies

3 cups Frosted Flakes cereal
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, melted

Measure out 3 cups of the cereal and crush to make 1-1/2 cups. Set aside. Beat butter and sugar together until fluffy with electric mixer. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, soda and salt and mix on low until blended. Fold in crushed cereal. Swirl melted warm chocolate lightly through the batter, leaving streaks of chocolate. Drop by level tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 375° about 12 minutes, or until done. Remove from sheets and cool on wire racks.
Makes about 5 doz. cookies, 2-1/2 inches in diameter.

Schav (Sorrel Soup)

1 pound young sorrel leaves, washed, stemmed as for spinach and chopped
2 tablespoons butter or margarine or oil
1 large minced onion
6 cups water or chicken stock
1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
2 tablespoons sugar
about 1/2 tsp lemon juice
2 large beaten egg yolks
Sour Cream

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, melt butter and sauté sorrel and onions for about 10 minutes or until sorrel is wilted and onions are translucent. Add water or stock and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in sugar and lemon juice a little at a time, tasting after each addition of lemon juice, until desired tartness is achieved.

Temper egg yolks with a few tablespoons of hot soup, then stir tempered egg yolks back into soup. Turn heat on and cook until slightly thickened and simmering but do not boil as the eggs will curdle. Serve hot or cold with sour cream.
Take care and happy harvesting,
